The new Ubuntu is here 2 days ago. I was using Natty Narwhal (11.04) and didn’t take any risk to use Gnome 3 there. But I couldn’t resist myself to switch to Gnome 3 this time. Here is some things I did after installing 11.10 -
[Note: If you are in Bangladesh, change the default mirror to Main Server or Server for United States, it'll save a lot of troubles]
1. Update your repository first
sudo apt-get update
2. Install resticted extras package for audio/video codec support and Vlc
sudo apt-get install ubuntu-restricted-extras vlc
3. Surely you want switch to Gnome 3, aren’t you?
sudo apt-get install gnome-shell
4. Install Gnome shell Tweak tool
sudo apt-get install gnome-tweak-tool
After I saw the latest release Gingerbread 2.3.4 in samfirmwire.com about a month ago, I decided to upgrade my Galaxy Mini from Froyo (2.1). I upgraded without any hassle. The experience was quite good. The phone was more faster and also the touch response was really good. I was happy with that
But, as Bangla is my native language and I use it a lot in my online activity including twitter, facebook, forum, etc – it was a must have support for my phone and I had that in my default ROM (S5570DDKC1). Although I had root my phone and install a new font. What problem I faced that, the gingerbread build of the ROM hadn’t support for complex script rendering. Although it was an Asian build, but it was lacking of complex script rendering support. So I couldn’t see Bangla clearly on the Gingerbread. Replacing the DroidSansFallback.ttf font was showing the characters, but rendering was faulty. So I decided to downgrade my Android OS to the Froyo stock ROM. I tried two Gingerbread ROM that time, one is S5570ZSKPB – China build and other one was S5570XXKPK – Russian build.
